Perry Como - "The Summer Wind" lyrics

The summer wind came blowin in, across the sea!
It lingered there to touch your hair, and walk with me!
All summer long we sang a song, and strolled the golden sand,
Two sweethearts and the summer wind!

Like painted kites, the days and nights, went flyin by,
The world was new, beneath the blue umbrella sky!
And softer than a piper man, one day called to you,
I lost you to the summer wind!

Now Im alone, I might have known, but who can guess'
Id hear a sound, and turn around to emptiness!
I run to see, who can it be, that laughter on the stair'
But who is there'
The summer wind!

Music by Henry Mayer ( original Danish lyrics by Hans Bradtke ) 1965
English lyrics Johnny Mercer
